Papyrus in Old Town Closing with Half-Off for Cards and Other Merchandise

Along with locations in Arlington, Tysons and the rest of the national chain, Papyrus in Old Town (721 King Street) is closing.

Signs in the window say everything in the shop is 40-60% off. The store remains about half stocked, with remaining cards and merchandise filling the front half of the store. Other items include journals, gift bags, and assorted stationery.

Staff at the store said the plan is to close the store at the end of the month — around Friday, Feb. 28.

There is some new life on the block, at least, with sushi restaurant The Handover opening across the street today.
